This awesome tank features a modest, fully covered front and a modern, activewear inspired back. It is overloaded with front post stitches, creating a stunning texture and a none "gappy" fabric allowing you to wear it with NO undershirt or bra! (Which is a huge pro for this sweaty human.)
Plus, extra thought was put into the neck and arm hole shaping, allowing it sit perfectly on the upper chest and shoulders for all sizes! It's worked from the bottom up, in 2 separate panels and is then seamed.
The pattern offers easy to follow row by row instructions with color coded sizes, a stitch chart, example photos, and a video tutorial that goes over how to work a fpdc (front post double crochet).
